23/12/2011: The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) [2009]

Watched the second movie of the Swedish trilogy this morning. While admittedly not as good as the first the movie was still fantastic and still has me anxiously waiting to watch the third.

The film is more of a crime drama but is still full of mysteries and twists. Keeping with its dark tone, the film keeps most of the characters from the first, and delves deeper into the story of Lisbeth Salander. Not much else to say without giving up the plot, which is the reason for watching such a movie. All I will say is that it will not be a major disappointment, and if you enjoyed the first continue the trilogy.

It is important to note that Niels Arden Oplev is not the director of the second two. Also I am disappointed to read that Steig Larsson, the writer of the book series died without finishing his fourth book. What a shame.
